Published by Thunder Bay Press, Sooper Yooper is the story of one man’s efforts to defend the environment against the negative forces that threaten our natural resources.
The hero, Billy Cooper, is not your typical crime fighter. The fact that he displays no apparent superpowers is intentional. The book’s authors felt it was important to underscore their belief that it is the average person – not someone endowed with X-ray vision or superhuman strength – who can make a difference when it comes to protecting the planet.
With our waters becoming increasingly important in the 21st century, mankind will have to fight battles against the villainous issues of toxic and nutrient pollution, invasive species and habitat degradation. As underscored by the ongoing concern of Asian carp in the Great Lakes, we must remain vigilant to every potential danger or we are likely to face dire consequences in the future.
